    Explore London, Trip to London

    Explore London However, that needn’t stop visitors from having some of that clichéd, fairy-tale experience when they get there. London can be anything you want it to be, and if that is a fantasy world on a par with Disney’s, then so be it. Firstly, it’s perfectly easy to take a tour on an open-topped, bright red double decker bus – a variety of companies will offer to show you the sights from that elevated perspective. And if you want something a little more Cliff Richard, then you can even hire a 1960s Routemaster for your private and nostalgic Summer Holiday. As for high-tea, where better than St James Restaurant…

    The Dallas World Aquarium And Zoo

    The Dallas World Aquarium and zoo is located near the Historic West End District in downtown Dallas, at 1801 North Griffin Street. After renovating an old warehouse, the aquarium opened its doors in 1992. It purchased another warehouse next door, which is joined to the original building by a “channel.” The second part of the aquarium was opened in 1997, and the “channel” connects the freshwater and the saltwater ecosystems. The Dallas World Aquarium not only exhibits species that live in the water, but also contains flora and fauna from around the world.

    Atlanta Stone Mountain Park

    Not all monuments are stand-alone structures. Stone Mountain Park in Atlanta, USA, is one of the biggest monuments in the world and spans over 25 million square feet and rises over 800 feet from the ground. The monument is a carved area of rock in the likeness of the three confederate heroes. This monument is packed all year round, but more so over national holidays and weekends. Although this monument does hold great historical importance to the American people, there is a lot more to this monument than just a historical site. The surrounding area is breathtaking, with many fabulous photo opportunities. The summer months can be quite warm, but…

    Discover an alternative London To Visit

    Of course, those old and well established attractions still draw a vast number of holidaymakers – but increasingly the slightly more outlying areas of London are attracting a significant number of visitors, seeking out a different or particular experience. Consequently, these areas have responded with a mushrooming of hotels, youth hostels and flats all over, meaning that a trip to Hoxton needn’t end with a taxi fare back to Baker Street. For those whose urges lie in seeking out fashion, art and music, East London is the place to be. As the media continually remind us, London is a back as a world-beating hub for all things fashionable. It’s pretty…

    Alcatraz Island, San Francisco, Operating Hours & Seasons

    Alcatraz Island is well-known for the penitentiary that used to be located on the 12 acres of island located a mere 1.5miles/2.5km northeast of San Francisco Bay. Before it was a penitentiary, Alcatraz was named Isla de los Alcatraces (Island of the Pelicans), since Ayala, the first Spaniard to alight, found large numbers of nesting pelicans there. A lighthouse was erected in 1853 when many ships visited the island, often shrouded in fog, during the California gold-rush. The island was a military prison from 1861-65 during the Civil War, and was used for the well-known jail between 1933-1963. It is worth paying extra to use the audio tour, which is…
